Quilt Roll Catch Up

Modern 9 Patch

Oh, the quilts I see! I'm so lucky to be surrounded by inspiration daily. It's been a whirlwind, and they keep rolling in from so much summer sewing. Let me show you a sampler of recent highlights. 

Rosann Triner sent me this supersized, modern beauty several weeks ago. It took us a while to decide how to quilt it. Between talking and texting ideas, we came up with this simple, yet elegant design. It adds softness with the curves, yet keeps it both modern and minimalist. This proves that often the simplest designs require the most planning. It's fantastic!

Logs & Stars Fall Table Runner

Logs & Stars Table Runner

Oh, I have a story to tell about coming in under a deadline, and bleeding fabric! It's worth repeating. 

Wash all your fabric! If you don't prewash, then test your fabrics for bleeding and shrinking before you start! 

I had all the blocks made for this project last Sunday night, gave them a good press with steam, and watched my pressing cloth turn orange.

The kids are back to school, and it's time for you to learn some new skills, and sharpen some old ones. It's ME TIME again! Hurrah!! Think you know how to sew a straight line? Great! I'll help you take it a big step forward. You're a seasoned quilter with a few quilts behind you? Feel confident you'll leave the class a much better quilter as I introduce more advanced options for you!

Class I will include:

· How to choose, read and decipher a pattern

· How to choose and prepare your fabric for this quilt

· How to sew a consistent ¼” seam

· How to cut and sew a log cabin block accurately

· Pressing for accuracy

· How to read and use a ruler

· Squaring up blocks

· Options for designing your own colorway for a unique quilt

· Pattern, additional printed support materials, coloring & planning pages, etc.


Class II will cover the garden variation of the 8 pointed-star, and use the Two-Peaks-In-One ruler by Creative Grids. I will cover additional design layouts, borders, and tips and tricks for assembling your quilt.

These relaxed Saturday classes are perfect for beating back the Covid blues. If the weather is warm or mild, the large canopy door will be open to provide maximum airflow. It’s like sewing on your porch so you might want to include a hoodie with your supplies.

·  Work in a large, bright, open space at your own 6’ table with ample spacing between tables. One floor layout with restroom. Coffee, tea, water and packaged snacks provided.

  • 12 ½”Creative Grids square ruler for the session will be provided and available for sale
  • Ironing station will be set up with 2 irons or bring your own set up
  • Bring your own sewing machine, notions, rotary cutter, ruler and mat, and fabric to experiment with. Ask me for more details when you call to register.
